Hancock agrees to review ban on educational overnights

Tim Farron said "Outdoor education centres help young people's mental health, confidence and learning, but many are on the brink of collapse partly because of the Government's ban on schools running residential trips. Glad that today the Health Secretary agreed to my request to review that ban.Outdoor education centres help young people's mental health, confidence and learning, but many are on the brink of collapse partly because of the Government's ban on schools running residential trips. Glad that today the Health Secretary agreed to my request to review that ban."

Tim's video can be seen on Twitter of his call to the Secretary of State for Education, in Parliament, to review the ban on residential school visits and change the DfE advice.

Matt Hancock agreed to review the ban on educational overnight stays with Gavin Williamson, Secretary of State for Education.

We very much hope that the review makes the change to allow the sector to reopen this vital aspect of outdoor learning.
